The only problem with your logic JOTS is that they are billionaires because of stock appreciation, not from salary. Sam Walton, Bill Gates, etc probably never had salaries higher than any elite athlete. On top of that many employees became wealthy from the stock, even ones who never made more than 30-50k/yr. I dont disagree with all of your thoughts though...I do not like the pay for incompetence either. We really need to find a way to restructure corporate boards which are filled with cronies who rubber stamp everything for each other. That's where we need real change.

I don't think my logic is flawed. If companies treat their employees good then production goes up and the feeling that they need to organize would go down. Therefore there would be no strangleholds as it should be. Everybody would win except like what I quoted the CEO's would have to settle for being half Billionaires. I'm not saying that any mandate or law to do that would ever work, I'm just saying it's a shame they don't so it on their own.
